Estudios constitucionales

GUARDIA HERNANDEZ, Juan José. Constitutional framework of Spanish private teaching sustained with public funds. Estudios constitucionales [online]. 2019, vol.17, n.1, pp.321-362. ISSN 0718-5200.

The current Spanish constitutional educational model is Thirty-three years old in 2018. One of its most outstanding features is the state funding of private educational establishments that meet the conditions required by Law. The public economic sustainability of private schools is an example of a legally-based constitutional right. The legislation articulates this right through a system of educational agreements that raises many questions, especially as regards its restrictive granting, being subject to State educational planning. At the bottom of the constitutional controversy lies the definition of education as a public service or a service of public interest.

Keywords : Freedom of education; public education; charters schools; vouchers; choice of school.
